Bought, Borrowed & Bagged (49)

BB&B (Bought, Borrowed and Bagged) is a weekly meme hosted by Braine and  Debbie @ Talk Supe where we share with you the books that we have bought, borrowed or bagged (won or gifted) plus a recap of the previous week's reviews, upcoming reviews, on going events and book movie or television news and The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book ReviewerIt's a chance to share news; a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. As you can see I've decided to link on another weekly haul/wrap up meme because I'd like to start visiting some new blogs on the atmosphere and I find meme's are the best way to do so!
- Bought -
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and one of the Assassin's Creed books?
Purchased from WHSmiths at the airport, I couldn't resist! It was buy one get one half price, in fact I think my boyfriend spent his money rather than mine so I'm pretty sure these don't count as bought but more bagged ;) Also the AC book was for him and I don't know which one he picked up!

    1. Sounds great! I'll contact you soon about this! :) Thank you

  10. Hi, lucky you for bagging so many books. I have borrowed mine from our library. Would those count each week too? I am just starting to follow book reviewer blogs. I am ending up in all kinds of niches because I have too many to focus on one. I did narrow it down to blog hopping though. I try to follow as many blog hops as I can in one day. Anyway, hope you will check out my Sunday Post blog entry. Thanks

    1. Thank you :) and yes library books will count, I just personally don't visit the library often because if I enjoy it I'll end up wanting to buy it any way haha. I'll stop by now to tell you this too in case you don't stop back!

  11. Someone was just telling me I should get the Gone Girl audiobook so I can't wait to hear how you like it. Apparently it's got lots of feels in it lol. Great haul!

    1. Yeah I've heard nothing but great things about it! Thanks c:

  12. Awesome holiday and is that the BF? Really cute!

    IMITATION and GONE GIRL are really really great books! Gone Girl will blow your mind away!

    1. Hehe yes it is :3 thank you.

      I'm pretty excited to start it, just need to get these review books outta the way first.

  13. Great book haul. Looks like you an wonderful holiday.

  14. Great haul! I have The Goddess Legacy and Imitation too!

  15. Great haul! I haven't read Gone Girl, but I have heard really great things about it. And your vacation looks sooo relaxing =D

    1. Yeah same, I'm dying to start it but review books first! haha. Thanks, it was lovely :)
